Many companies identify diversity and inclusion as key drivers of growth and sources of competitive advantage. Pathways to Price exists to increase the diverse pool of graduates for the employers who actively recruit and hire talented students at Price College. 

We realize the benefits of a diverse student body and are committed to increasing the number of underrepresented students and their success across our major fields of study by focusing on high school seniors who plan to major in business. 

Our mission is to increase first-time enrollment with declared business majors for the class of 2027, drive retention and ensure graduation and career placement.

The inaugural Class of 2027 Pathways to Price will participate in a yearlong program that focuses on admitting underrepresented students to OU as pre-business majors.

The program’s ACT Math & English workshops held at our Graduate School of Business in Oklahoma City will strengthen the skills necessary for successful study at Price College when they enroll Fall of 2023. 

The Career Readiness component will provide exposure to Price students who have completed internships and alumni in different professions.  This will help students choose the career path they’d like to pursue after graduation.

  • Mentorship throughout the admissions process and during their enrollment at Price College
  • ACT Workshops, study guides, calculator, and watch timer at the OU Gene Rainbolt Graduate School of business in OKC.
  • All students that successfully complete the program will receive, during their four years of study at Price, a book award of $500 each semester.
  • All students will receive special support and advising as part of the program.
  • 10 Pathways to Price Fellows will be selected from the program to receive significant financial awards during their four years at Price College
